It’s hard to make a name for yourself on the offensive line. It’s even harder when you’re on the fringe, as is the case with 49ers offensive lineman Alex Boone.

But Boone got some love from Sacramento Bee 49ers beat writer Matt Barrows, who listed Boone in his “other players who stood out” for the Niners against the Colts on Sunday:

Boone has been playing his college position, left tackle, lately. He looked very good against the Colts second teamers. In fact, there was no issue with the left side of either the first- or second-team offensive lines.

Boone will have to turn some more heads the rest of the way to make the final 53. But this seems to be a good start.
